In our current calendar today is the 28th day of the 9th month of the year.
I will be glad and exult in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. When my enemies turn back, they stumble and perish before You. For You have maintained my just cause; You have sat on the throne judging righteously. You have rebuked the nations; You have destroyed the wicked; You have blotted out their name forever and ever. The enemy has come to an end in perpetual ruins, and You have uprooted the cities; the very memory of them has perished. But the LORD abides forever; He has established His throne for judgment, and He will judge the world in righteousness; He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity. Psalms 9:2-8
According to the Jewish calendar today is the 1st day of the New Year. Yesterday, I wanted to be alone and just spent time doing some of the things I needed those things I’ve been putting off, and some things I just wanted to do that didn’t fall into either category.
So it was with this past year, we the church accomplished some things, put off many others and sometimes did just what we wanted. Times and seasons have changed. In the coming year we will experience different from our previous experience. We will truly see Him as one to be worshiped. We will experience the reality that He is the one who has defeated His enemies in our lives. The things of the past, which have deterred us from His purpose, will fall away and be forgotten. He is the one who rules. He abides in those who call upon His name. His Kingdom is built with living stones by His hands.
We will understand in a new way that which we have not comprehended – not only does He abide forever, but also His word does not pass away nor return to Him without accomplishing His purpose. People come and go, passing away, but the things He’s spoken abide forever. There will be many opportunities for those with eyes to see and ears to hear to pick up the mantles, the gifting, and the calling that are spoken of through the generations and step into a new day.
We have entered a new year and a time to do those things the Lord has destined us to do and be. It is time to tie up loose ends getting on with the business of the Kingdom. Jesus stated that it was time to be about his Father’s business. We’ve turned a corner and are entering a season.
He is building and establishing His kingdom in us. His kingdom is within; for today is the day, He stands at the door and knocks. His Word and His words to us are forever true. He is establishing and continues to establish His Kingdom in us, through us and many times in spite of us. He has gifted us, called us, and anointed us for one purpose – that His Kingdom with the ruling, reigning King is demonstrated in the earth. We look to the heavens and all of creation is waiting for the revealing of His sons in the earth.
Early this evening there came a storm, the wind blew, the sky darkened and a steady rain began to fall. It seemed unusual, as it was so sudden; someone asked if there had been any storm warnings. We have entering into a season of suddenlies. A wind of the Spirit is blowing will catch us off guard if we are not tuned to the moving of the Spirit. Many will think this is a bad thing, but from the storms will come much fruit. We will experience a steady outpouring of His word coming to those who have ears to hear and eyes to see and a heart to understand.
After the storm passed the sky was still dark, but in the distance was a perfect double rainbow with a few scattered clouds to one side. His promises are true and they are available, the double portion to all who will focus on His promise rather than on what appears to be blocking the fulfillment.
The 9th month and the 28th day.
Jesus died in the ninth hour. He gave us nine gifts of the Spirit and by His work in us, there is to become nine fruits of the Spirit. Jesus is the second person of the Godhead; He sent His disciples out two-by- two as a witness. It takes two to establish a witness and two is double. In the last days, He will send the Spirit of Elijah that hearts would be turned. Elisha followed Elijah; he asked for and received a double portion. Eight represents new beginnings; eight people were saved from the flood and circumcision is performed on the eighth day.
I am establishing My Kingdom. My name will be lifted up and exalted as the Fruit of My spirit is seen in the earth. I would pour out to all who ask a double portion. A new day is coming for My church, a day of signs, wonders and miracles that hearts will turn to Me. Out of death, I will bring forth life and life more abundantly.
